What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Working with a high volume of new customers offers a lot of opportunities to appreciate the diversity of the technical ecosystem. We work with one-person teams to full C-suites and everything in between. As a team, our greatest challenge and our greatest strength is variety.

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

With a global team, it’s crucial to be intentional in how and when we meet.

What does career growth look like on your team?

Every year, I have a goal to promote at least 1-2 people on my team. When I sit down with an individual on my team, we lay out what their personal and professional goals are for the year and beyond and outline the major steps we can take to help them reach those goals. It’s very satisfying to watch your teammates grow personally and professionally.
